Coca Leaf Readings in Cusco
The reading take place in your hotel room or our main office in Cusco. The coca leaf reading ceremony starts with a warm welcome, and to begin forming your customized ceremony the shaman will ask for your name and reasons for visiting. There will be a prayer to the Apus (mountain gods) to show our respect. A small blanket will be laid out and the shaman will blow his breath to the mountains through three coca leaves. He or she will then lay out a handful of leaves on the blanket. How the leaves fall is the message sent by the mountains. The main categories the shaman will focus on are health, family, friends and occupation.
